• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"An image has made this man pale."

Some new media exists almost exclusively for trolling. These sites are designed to be shown to others as pranks as their extreme Squickyness is so toxic that the look on someone's face when they see one is a form of entertainment in and of itself. The best have earned a Brown Note-like reputation, while some extend the prank by locking your browser if you try to close the website, forcing you to close through Task Manager...and some of them don't even let you do that.

It should go without saying that almost all of these are horribly NSFW. Don't look them up unless you want your eyes to commit suicide and/or have plenty of Brain Bleach on hand. This may sound like Schmuck Bait, but just don't...don't...don't look for them, okay?

Contrast Rickroll, which is also sent as a prank, but in a good nature.

No examples, thanks. We're just defining the term.
